Implementing the concept of green development in operations

According to ABB Group’s 2030 Sustainable Development Strategy and Goals, we have integrated sustainable development into every aspect of our work, incorporating the concept of green development into our own operations, and taking a series of energy-saving and efficiency measures, including:

Establish a 1500 square meter solar photovoltaic power generation system on the top of the office building, utilizing clean energy to power the office building;

Replacing office and factory lighting with LED energy-saving lights can save over 600000 kWh of electricity annually;

Innovatively adopting reactance load in frequency converter testing, saving 50% of electrical energy loss;

Fully apply ABB frequency converters to the HVAC and water supply systems of the company’s factory buildings, significantly saving electricity;

Utilize the waste heat from the factory testing motor room for hot water supply in the factory;

Using fully electric buses as company buses to promote green travel;

Purchase national certified voluntary emission reduction (CCER) through the Carbon emission trading platform.

In addition to the above measures, the company also plans to take more energy-saving and emission reduction measures, including expanding rooftop solar energy, upgrading and replacing more efficient transformers and chillers, installing more advanced heat pump systems, developing energy management systems (EMS), etc., in order to further reduce electricity and steam consumption and improve energy efficiency.
